2. The Ride Will Not Kill You

2015-Subaru-WRX-STI-03

Reports are flying around that the new WRX STI has a ride too punishing for daily driving. Admittedly on the hard side of rough, the 2015 STI is no harsher than other performance-focused vehicles of similar intent. Take the Audi TT-RS, Mitsubishi EVO, MINI JCW or Subaru’s own BRZ; they’re all rougher to ride around in. The ride quality is somewhere in-between normal and sport settings on vehicles with adjustable suspensions like the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG.

Even when encountering larger bumps in the road, the STI absorbs the impact in one sudden, yet control motion. After a back-to-back drive with a 2014 WRX STI, we find the ride quality has only decreased a fraction, which is a worthwhile trade-off for the improved performance.

    They should have a quiet mode where the exhaust muffler system has a solenoid that will shunt the exhaust through quiet mufflers when you want it quiet. So if you want to sneak into the neighborhood or out of the neighborhood late at night you don’t wake everybody up even if you barely press on the gas at all.
    Being loud all the time isn’t good.

    Also the MPG, why can’t it get decent MPG if you stay out of the boost by being real light with the throttle? Auto start stop would be nice with a button to disable it of course

    What if you are trying to sneak away from the police? A loud exhaust doesn’t help with that one bit

    It’s a shame that the 2.5 EJ engine is still really unreliable (many people having to get a new engine after 75,000 KM only.. most of the times it has to do with the head gaskets
